Our best line of awnings is customizable from the size to the housing to the fabric and valance and braid detail. Choose from a range of solid and striped 100% acrylic fabric that will withstand seasons in the sun.


Projection is the length the unit measures from the back of the installation bracket out towards the front bar when fully extended. To give this measurement, measure the roof line (the top of the awning) from the wall to the front bar.

Your cover will automatically include extra fabric to wrap around the roller tube. For this measurement, round up to the nearest full foot.

The overall fabric width is from one end of the cover to the other end (please note that the awning fabric will be 4 to 6 inches NARROWER than the awning width). The valance will automatically be the exact same with as the main cover.

This measurement is crucial so please take your time and get it within a 1/4". Round down to the nearest 1/4" if needed. The cover will include new PVC spline to attach it to the roller tube and the front bar. If they do not fit your unit, please reuse your original PVC spline.

We use only first grade, 100% acrylic Shade and marine grade fabric from Sunbrella. This fabric carries an 8 full year warranty from rot, mildew and excessive fading. The panels are sewn with GORE Tenera thread which carries the same 8 year warranty.

*IMPORTANT if you select a pattern or stripe fabric, that it may or may not line up with your main awning fabric. This is due to different manufacturing processes as well as the actual fabric roll width which differs slightly from roll to roll and manufacturer.

The valance is located on the front of the awning which provides additional solar protection. The fabric is the same as the main body. All the stripes and seams will line up with the main cover. You can select from several styles shown here.

More Info

The braid, which is the finished edging on the bottom edge of the valance, is also 100% acrylic and is guaranteed not to fade. The braid is stitched onto the valance.

If SOFFIT MOUNT is selected choose NO for Protective Aluminum HOOD below. NO HOOD IS REQUIRED FOR SOFFIT MOUNT.

The mounting method is based on where the awning is being mounted to the building unit. Choose from three options: Wall Mount, Ceiling Soffit Mount, or Roof Mount Wall Mount - This application is typically used on flat two story homes where adequate mounting height can be achieved. Once you determine that this is the best mounting application for you and identify the mount area, be sure there are no obstructions such as dryer vents, exterior lights or downspouts. Ceiling Soffit Mount - For this mounting application you install the unit directly to the underside of the eve or overhang of your home. To confirm this is a good mounting location, first check that there are no obstructions as described above. Next, open up the underside of your eve to confirm you will have some structural framework for mounting the awning. With this installation you will typically gain “virtual projection” of the unit as the unit will not be mounted against the wall you measured from. You typically pick up 4 to 6 inches of added protection. Roof Mount - This is the typical mounting needed on ranch and bi-level homes to achieve adequate pitch. The brackets will mount on the flat asphalt shingles, 2 rows back from the roof edge, over the eve. With the slope of the roof and the height of the brackets, add 12” to the top edge of the roof to determine mounting height for this method. Specially designed roof mount brackets are required. (Additonal $350)
No Aluminum Hood (add $0.00)
Aluminum Hood (add $0.00)
PLEASE NOTE: Please select NO HOOD option for ceiling/soffit mounting. The hood is constructed of aluminum and is powder coated to match the aluminum frame color. The hood attaches to the awning’s rear torsion or square bar. This option is highly suggested for roof mounts, as well as wall mount applications, where there is no protection within 2’ over the unit such as an eve or soffit. The hood will protect the first 10 inches of the fabric when the awning is retracted. Without a hood, overtime you might see some discoloration of the awning fabric in this particular area when the unit is extended. If the awning is motorized, the addition of a hood may help to extend the life of the motor.
Bronze (add $0.00)
Camel (add $0.00)
white (add $0.00)
The awning’s aluminum framework, other than the fasteners, is powder coated rather than wet painted in your choice of standard colors based on the model selected. The typical homeowner will select a frame color that best matches their home’s exterior trim color. More Info

Motor Left + Sensor (add $299)

You have an option as to how you would like to operate your awning. Drive Side: Choose location of Manual Gear or Motor (right or left side of the awning). Determine left or right side when standing on your deck looking at the house. Manual Operation: The manual crank option requires you to turn a crank handle to extend and retract the unit. You will need to turn the crank approximately 70 times to extend a 10' projection unit - more for greater projections. Retracting the unit will take more effort than extending the unit as you are working against the outward force of the internal arm springs. Motorized Operation: Motorizing your unit will only require an outdoor outlet for power. The unit will operate with a remote control and will stop automatically when fully extended or fully retracted. When your unit is motorized you can also stop it in any position to best fit your needs. Our motors also have a built-in manual crank system so if you lose power you can still operate your awning. This option includes the power cord and remote. Optional Wind Sensor: This wireless sensor is mounted on the front bar and sends a single to the motor to retract the unit if it becomes too windy. The sensor offers an added level of protection to you investment.

A retractable awning is a great addition to any patio or deck where you want to provide cover from the unrelenting sun. With the Retractable Awning Builder SunCover 5000, it doesn’t have to be a daunting process to get the size you need. Our best line of awnings is customizable from the size to the housing to the fabric and valance and braid detail. Choose from a range of solid and striped 100% acrylic fabric that will withstand seasons in the sun.

Customize your awning by color and cut. You can select from a number of valance types including a straight edge or a traditional scalloped cut. Once you have the aesthetics decided, you can customize the hardware including the housing type, frame color and whether you want a manual gear or motorized retraction. You can add a motor with a sensor to automate the use of your awning even further, so it will extend at certain temperatures or retract when the wind increases.

Configuration options are plenty, but also very clear so you can make informed choices on your DIY retractable awing.
